Yeah! A '61 Strat! OK, so it's not THAT Strat. But it ain't 20 grand either. Really clean 1961 Harmony Stratotone single-pup electric. Screaming little Dearmond sounds awesome. Pots were really scratchy and looked awful inside, so I installed a high quality harness (CTS and Orange Drop) that I had lying around. Completely clean now, and really cooks with the higher end components. BTW, I did NOT hook the treble boost switch back up, because it wasn't really doing anything except bypassing the tone pot. The original cloth wires are still in there if you want to solder it back in. The case took a little water damage at the bottom, but is still 100% functional and looks good. A far as the guitar - they don't come any cleaner than this. There is slight weather checking along the bottom side (i.e. where the end pin is located) that probably resulted from the water that marred the case. Very minor. Otherwise out-of-the-box clean. The bridge is a replacement Hofner type with the little fretwire pieces allowing for intonation. Any older Harmony style archtop bridge can be modified to fit if you'd like to go back to stock. The upper two tuner post have very slight bends. I'm being really picky here - this guitar is in superb shape.

Real charges only - no added materials or handling charges. All guitars insured for full value. I will use the least expensive shipping available, although this may be slow in some circumstances (e.g. parcel post). Please let me know if you desire a faster, albeit more, expensive service. Please allow 2 - 4 days of time to prepare and pack your guitar IN ADDITION to the actual shipping transit.

NO buyer's remorse PLEASE! Damage or loss in shipping = insurance claim (with which I will be glad to assist you). At my discretion, a disatistfied buyer may return a guitar (with a thorough explanation) for a full refund of purchase price but not of shipping. I'd rather begrudgingly take back a guitar than truly disappoint a customer. If, however, I have ever made a serious error in identification/originality/damage etc. that negatively affects a guitar's value, then a full refund including shipping will be given. PLEASE file any return claims ASAP - seven days at most.
